Earlier this month I booked last minute tickets and visited Crete for a week. Crete will always have a very special place in my heart. It’s such a beautiful Greek island with a lot to see. I spent almost every Summer holiday there until I turned 18 and therefore I have lots of childhood memories. I last visited 3 years ago and the opportunity arose for me to visit again, so I took it.
My family are from a little village called Plaka opposite little island Spinalonga (if you haven’t read The Island by Victoria Hislop I highly recommend it). I spent the week swimming, going for long walks in the early mornings and enjoying the September sunshine along with quality time with my family. It was good to be back.
Have you ever visited the beautiful island of Crete? If you do, I recommend renting a car so you can see more of the island while you are there. Visit e-mietwagenkreta to see what vehicles are available to you.
